Draught at Qbrick (from tasting notes). Moderate barnyardy aroma, earthy straw, ripe orange & apricot, slight banana, alcohol covers the wheat. No head at all (wheat?). Sweet pear/peach/apricot flavors, and some supporting bitterness. Full-bodied stuff, good, rounded and very smooth mouth feel. Alcohol stands out, very heavy for a wheat. Well balanced, and great palate.
